WHAT HAPPENS IF A PLAYER DROPS OUT?
If there are only nine players on the table, there are only two early position. For 8 players, there will even only be one early position left.

For every player that leaves the table, we leave out another position, going from the early positions to the middle positions and then to the late positions.

so that means when there are only 7 players remaining no more early position? am i right?

only MP1 MP2 MP3 CO BU SB BB?

i can understand basic english but Im having a hard time with this.

at 9 handed, first position = UTG+1
at 8 handed, first position = UTG+2
at 7 handed, first position = MP1
at 6 handed, first position = MP2
at 5 handed, first position = MP3
at 4 handed, first position = CO

at 3 handed, first position = BU - though first to act pre-flop, is last to act on all later betting rounds.

at 2 handed, I think you'll work that one out, but remember the change in position after the flop.
